The Who frontman is the latest star to have a go at the X Factor boss.
The veteran rocker believes the music industry is in crisis – and he blames Simon, according to an article in the Sun newspaper.
Roger said: “We really need to break away from The X Factor and American Idol – that Simon Cowell thing….I really think the music industry will beat this slump and come back stronger. Groups like The Who, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles wouldn’t have made it past the audition stage, let alone be shown on TV. That’s the joke of it. The music they make on the shows is absolute tripe. He’s made a good industry out of it, but it’s belittled the power of music. He wouldn’t know what the “X Factor” was if it bit him on the b******s.”
